ment ln which ho congratulated his fol
lowers ln the Progressive ranks on
their accomplishment ln bringing about
the crushing defeat of the Republican
party "since the theft of the llepub-
.lean organisation by the Republican j
bosses at Chicago last June.
The Progressive leader reiterates
what he has already said, that the Pro
gressive party has come to Btny nnd
that the battle hns Just begun. At the
sarae time he assures the old parties
of Progressive support any time they
desire to carry Into effect policies em
bodied In the Progressive platform.
Tho colonel pronounces the achieve

country that Is, I congratulate those
Rood mon and women who with Mnccrlty
of purpose for the common good have had
the vision to look Into the comlnc years
and see what the future demands from us
who work ln this proscnt.
What the Progressive party has done
since the theft of the Republican organi
zation by tho Itepublloan bosses at Chi
cago last June Is literally unparalleled In
tho history of freo government worked
under representative institutions. Three
months hare gone by since somo hun

Against Great Combination.
Without much money, without any or
ganisation, acnlnst the wealth of the
country, against the entire organized po
litical ability of tho country, asalnst the
bitter hostility of 90 per cent of the press
of the country, against the furious oppo
sition of every upholder of special prlvl
lege, whether ln politics or ln business,
and with the channels of Information to
tho public largely choked, the Progressive
party has polled between four and four
and one-haJf million votes, haH hopelessly
beaten one of the old parties both In the
electoral college and In the popular vote,
has carried several of the Important states
In the Union and has taken second place
ln tho nation and either first or second

Not One Man Party.
During the campaign I said repeatedly
that this was In no shape or way a one
man movement, but a movement for great
principles, a movement which has sprung,
as all healthy movements In our democ
racy must spring, from the heart and con
science of tho people themselves. This
truth must bo kept steadily before the
minds of all of us. The Progressive party
has come to stay. If either of the old par
ties will endeavor to put into legislation
any one of our planks It can count upon
our hearty support In so doing, but we
will not rest contented until the entire
platform ls enacted Into law and becomes
part of our political system, national and
I am proud indeed that the great, good
fortune has been mine to fight shoulder
to shoulder with the men and women who
ln the ranks and ln various positions of
leadership have waged this great battle
for social and Industrial justice. So far
from being over, the battle has just be
gun. We will not rest content until every
fsature of the Progressive program has
been put Into effect, and when this has
been done unquestionably thera will have
opened to us new avenues, along which It
will still be a duty to work for the moral
and economic betterment of our people
